If there was one team outside of New England that we did not expect to land Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, it was the Buffalo Bills.
On the trade block since the end of the 2018 season after clashing with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that Antonio Brown is close to being dealt to the Bills.
In terms of shock value, this rates a 10. How will Brown react? Is he going to be happy with heading to Western New York? Will the trade ultimately be completed? So many questions. So few answers.
Obviously, the sports world had its reactions to this monumental and earth-shattering trade report. Here’s the best.
Antonio Brown thought he was going to San Francisco and follow in the footsteps of Jerry Rice and the Steelers sent that man to Buffalo

Antonio Brown's one of my favorite players to watch ever but if the Steelers sent him to Buffalo for, like, a fifth-round pick, that is one of the funniest things any sports team has ever done

The Josh Allen-Antonio Brown dynamic is going to be, um, fascinating.
